We stopped for a simple lunch. We received a really nice reception. The smoked salmon and prawn sandwich is memorable ! Beautifully presented and generous, together with great taste. The hotel is a gem, nicely appointed and very comfortable. Don't drive past, you will miss a treat. David & Helen

I stayed here with my husband and toddler as a one night stop between ferries. Staff were massively helpful, and really made our son very welcome at dinner. The owner was particularly kind when he had a tumble and hurt himself at breakfast. The food was very good and my husband, who is normally a devoted carnivore, really enjoyed the... More

We booked lunch about an hour ahead, while on a cycling trip with 15 of us. Nothing was too much trouble. They set us up in our own room. Food was exceptional - local produce, freshly baked bread on the premises. Great service. Can't recommend this highly enough. Owners happy to chat with us. Very friendly staff

Went for food to the West Loch hotel this afternoon with a party of 5 and our wee dog. As soon as we were in the hotel we were treated as if we were staying. The staff were so helpful to ourselves and our wee dog. The food on offer was varied enough (for the meat eaters anyway), but there... More

We visited at the beginning of May. Having just missed the Kennacraig to Islay ferry we continued driving up the A83 for a couple of miles and found this lovely hotel for a spot of lunch. Our friendly, helpful and interesting hostess gave us a very warm welcome, and lunch was great. This was a quiet time of year so... More

Upon arrival at the West Loch hotel, we parked out front where there was lots of parking. The hotel itself was beautifully presented and looking out over the loch. We went through a lounge to reception and it was beautiful. It was lit with dim lighting and candles. The receptionist was the owner himself, a lovely man who was very... More

The hotel is convenient to both the Arran and Islay ferries. The evening meal was excellent but they struggled with breakfast due to staff shortages. The bedroom was basic and in need of decoration. Did not enjoy dogs flying around the lounge areas.

We stopped by this Hotel while on the Campeltown to Oban cycle route. There were 15 of us and the hotel staff were fantastic, great friendly service and the open sandwiches were the best I've ever had,. Smoked venison and pear chutney, truly outstanding. The whole group were full of praise for every option chosen. I very rarely write reviews... More

Called in here for Lunch on holiday Monday with my wife, daughter and son in law. Absolutely amazed by the quality and presentation of the food here. Slightly pricier than other places in the area but worth every penny. Don't know who the chef is but the standard of food, presentation etc. Was excellent. Well done! We'll definitely be back!!!

Stayed one night prior to trip to Islay. Very welcoming owner and efficient staff. It really is a beautiful location. Food is of a very high standard. Emphasis on local produce, which is great to see. Happy to recommend.
